How to Get Out of a Handstand

Something that hasn’t been covered by numerous videos on my YouTube channel is how to get out of a handstand.

This step is actually fairly simple, but it’s essential to know how to execute it properly and use it in your handstand training. Two of the most common problems people encounter when practicing handstands are under-balance and overbalance. Under-balance is easy to handle, since you just need to let the gravity pull your feet back to the ground.

On the other hand, overbalancing can be more of an issue, but luckily it’s quite simple to overcome it. Some people just roll out or land into a bridge, but there is another more efficient solution for this. Use your dominant hand to step up with it and as you do that, your weight will come over and you’ll do a something like a cartwheel¬†and land safely on one leg, than the other. Make sure to check out the video above to see how it’s done. This is by far the safest way to handle overbalancing problems in a handstand training and when you do it successfully a couple of times, it’ll become a second nature and you won’t have to worry about this issue ever again.
